Reminder of phishing
Some members of the organisations have fallen into phishing. Criminals can use the passwords to break into e-mail accounts of victims and send new phishing messages from them to hundreds or even thousands of new recipients. Criminals send messages from hacked e-mail accounts to at least the addresses to which the data breach victim has normally sent messages.
Therefore, special caution should be exercised when opening e-mail links and attachments, even if the sender is the correct account of his own or the interest group organisation.
The actual stealing of username and password takes place on a website controlled by criminals, typically located in the Microsoft Power Apps portal of previously broken organisations.
